Sexual Assault Prevention

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month…

Sexual assault includes a wide range of victimizations including attacks or attempts of unwanted sexual contact between the victim and offender. It may or may not involve force and include things such as grabbing, fondling, and verbal threats. The most important form of sexual assault prevention is through healthy relationship education. This page contains all the needed resources to support youth in sexual assault awareness and prevention.

Teach the importance of Consent

Dibble hosts a monthly webinar series, check out this webinar on consent.

Many young people are undereducated in consent, thus limiting their understanding of what it is and what it is not. Research finds persistent confusion about what constitutes both lack of consent and sexual assault. As youth-serving professionals, we can help bridge that gap to help young people better understand these two relevant and extremely important topics. In other words, let’s work to help “unblur” what for some can be a blurry understanding of consent and sexual assault.
